By pressing the FN switch button, the handwheel is configured into a focus puller, helping you achieve high-precision focus changes in real time to create creative shots.
Like a high-end sports car, Smooth 4 can enter PhoneGo mode and release the potential of motors in a flash. It can respond to every delicate movement without delay without the need to worry about losing any shots.What's better is that amazing scene transition can be achieved in your footage without post-processing.
Smooth 4 can produce smooth footage and also track objects including but not limited to human faces with much higher precision. You can frame the object you want to track on the screen, and the stabilizer can do the rest. Shooting has never been so easy, but now we have Smooth 4!
